So, you may know or not-know, next year I may be going into public school. As a Sophomore this year, I've been home schooled my entire life. It's not like I've never been around public school kids (most of my good friends are) and it's not like I've never been to a schooled-event (football games, plays, swim meets, etc..) but I've never actually gone to school. Years ago, when I was a tiny tot, my mom felt led to home school me and then my little brother, Jaxon. My mom didn't like the fact that God was taken out of public schools and how the text books taught the exact opposite. Also the factor that I'd be with a bunch of kids for eight or so hours a day who, let's face it, don't always have the best habbits (you know-the pot smokers, the hoes, the language).
However lately I've been feeling left out. I want to do plays and be on year book and feel apart of the school when I go to games and events. I don't get to see my friends every single day and, to be honest, I've always kind of wanted a locker and a backpack...
Nothing's set-in-stone, but if I were to go to high school and wear the Zebra's black-and-white, I'd have to take a lot of tests considering I'd be entering into my Junior year of high school. Another option would for me to continue being home schooled and then take some college-level courses. I know some kids at the high school take them and it'd be a good way to be in a class room with at least some kids my age, while still not having to actually attend school. Maybe I could even take some courses this year.
I'm not sure what God wants, I'm not sure what I want. I don't want to feel like I missed out on a bunch, though. What do you guys think? Have any of you gone from home schooling to public school or from public school to home schooling? I'd love all your feedback!
